    You just had to go ahead and ruin our plans by bringing up that horrible memory.

    Dang! I just checked my calendar and I have to go to the benefit for the one organization I dare not absent myself from- my wife's great life long passion.
    So, I can't make it.
    Dang!

    It?s that time of year again ? time for the Chicago Force annual Life Day Celebration!

    This year?s Celebration will be Saturday, December 13, 2008 beginning at 6:00 p.m. at my house.

    We will have all the traditional Life Day activities:

    The viewing of the Holiday Special (as long as someone brings it) ? a must if you have never had the pleasure.

    The Grab Bag gift exchange ? Bring a gift for the grab bag and go home with a gift from the grab bag. Gifts are limited to $20.00 - $25.00 (no gift cards, please). Be creative ? there are a ton of Star Wars related items out there!

    While you are not required to bring a food and/or beverage item, the party is always more fun with more food. Think of something good ? or I will give you an assignment.

    Send me an e-mail or PM for more information.

    I will be there. I hope to be there for book,beer, clubs and the party itself. Will most likely be driving and could most likely give rides, I know there is a big shuffle of who goes with who. Thing is I am gonna be a jerk and say if you need to leave early for something or something else sorry, I don't think I am your ride.

    I am always in awe of your most fantastic capacicty to find and help those in need:)


    It got me to thinking about one of the first times I met you concerning this
    kind of charity.

    My memory and my notes on these boards, call to mind
    a Chicago Force event that I remember as,

    06-11-2005 Star Wars & Basketball
    CF-ROTS & Lunch @ Hollywood Blvd.
    CF-Mustafarian MiniGolf & Pizza the Hut

    My memory is of us talking about your efforts while standing around
    in front of the Hollywood Blvd. I think JediGeek was with you.

    Something about getting a sneak preview of something to someone on a laptop.

    of course, in my old age my memory may not be what it used to be[face_laugh]

    anyway,
    a most noble cause on a Life Day Celebration event.

    Let us know how it goes.


    //EDIT//

    sorry just noticed that there is a whole thread on this subject.

    also,

    will think of something to bring to the party, give us a head count,
    so I can bring enough of anything for all

    Dave had the suggestion over on the other boards of showing the Rifftrax version of the Holiday Special. I've never heard their version and think it would be fun. Does anyone have that to sync with the video? The Rifftrax version includes the commercials. My bootleg VHS has the commercials edited out, but it does have lots of Kenner commercials and trailers at the end to fill the tape. It also has less dropouts than the tape from the last few parties.

    I'm still trying to figure out what to bring. I've got to work that morning then catch the train into the city, so it has to be something that doesn't have to be refrigerated and can fit in my backpack.

    In addition to whatever I bring, I do plan to bring egg nog.
